   Directions: cream crisco, brown sugar, white sugar, 4
   beaten eggs, and vanilla together. In a seperate bowl,
   combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
   Mix dry ingedients to blend. Add, rice krispies,
   rolled oats, coconut, pecans and chocolate chips.
   
   Begin adding dry ingredients to creamed crisco
   mixture, this mixture will get stiff, and unless you
   have dough hooks, it will become necessary to mix by
   hand.If needed add a Tablespoon of water to moisten
   just a bit After you have added all ingredients and
   they are well blended. roll dough into small to med
   balls and place  on cookie sheet. Flatten dough with
   fork, and Bake at 325 F. for 8 to 10 minutes.
   
   NOTE: this makes at least 8 doz. cookies. I have made
   the recipe and refrigerated  dough during the
   holidays.( great for those of us who like hot cookies
   and milk. I also have cut recipe in half and that
   works well for me. This recipe is quite old and given
   to me by an aunt of 76 years old. When she said by
   hand after working in some of the dry ingredients she
   means BY  HAND, said get right in  there and toss the
   dough around blending it well.
